(Photo Supplied/City of South Bend and
The City of South Bend is expanding operating hours at its Organic Resources Facility.
The center, located at 4340 Trade Drive, will now be open, weekdays, from 8 a.m. – 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday, and Saturdays, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. through October 1st.
Residents and businesses can drop off yard waste at the facility for a nominal fee.
The cost of disposing yard waste is $3.65 per cubic yard for residents within South Bend city limits.
For customers outside South Bend city limits, the fee is $11 per cubic yard.
The yard waste is converted into compost and mulch for area residents, which is available free of charge if self-loading, or for a fee if help is needed.
Those self-loading must bring their own shovels and containers to collect the material. Loading of compost and mulch is available at the following rates:
Up to four yards at a time: $5 per cubic yard + tax
More than four yards: $9 per cubic yard for all yards, including the first four + tax
Loading of materials is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. (Note: The last loading time of the day is an hour before close.) No loading is available on Saturdays.


  1. County residents pay taxes just like the “in-city” residents do, yet now it is almost a 400% price hike for us. Do better, South Bend!
